Long snapper’s aren’t like quarterbacks or star pass rushers. You sometimes have to think outside the box, to have people take notice of your skills.

Ryan King of the CFL’s Edmonton Eskimos, just provided himself a platform to display his skills. King sent out this tweet about his cousin wanting to see just how accurate of a long-snapper he could be.

How’s knocking a can off the kids head for accurate?

Report: Dwight Howard Could Be Suspended For Game 5 Tue, 26 May 2015 12:24:40 +0000 dwight-howard-flagrant

Lost in James Harden’s 45 point explosion, is the possibility that Dwight Howard could miss game five in Golden State, after losing his temper and popping Andrew Bogut in the mouth.

Howard was issued a flagrant-one foul after the play, but CBS Sports is reporting that Howard’s blatant elbow could be upgraded to a flagrant-two, causing him to be suspended for game five.

The league will no doubt review the play Tuesday, and should they decide to upgrade it, Howard could face a suspension in Game 5 vs. the Warriors Wednesday. This is where the decision to not issue the flagrant two can become complicated. Losing Howard might have led to a Warriors comeback in Game 4, but the Rockets did have a comfortable lead throughout the game, even as Golden State closed to within six late. Losing Howard for the entirety of Game 5 would put Houston not just against the wall, but between the wall and another wall of giant spikes. Still, the important thing is getting the call right. Unfortunately, the playoffs have provided such inconsistency on the issue, it’s hard to tell exactly what getting it right means.

You don’t want the suspension of an NBA star lingering over game five, but Howard’s elbow wasn’t a basketball play, and he’s likely to sit.

Harden had a monster game in Game 4, does that mean the curse has been lifted?

]]> 0 Dwight Howard Goes WWE on Andrew Bogut (Video) Tue, 26 May 2015 02:47:49 +0000 D12

Monday Night Raw has come to ESPN courtesy of Dwight Howard and Andrew Bogut.

This blow to the face resulted in Howard getting a Flagrant 1 foul, and Bogut who initiated the physical play with the push-grab of his jersey received no technical or personal foul.

These two monsters have been battling in the paint and unlike last night with Al Horford receiving a Flagrant 2 foul with his people’s elbow impression on the twitter proclaimed “dirtiest player” backup point guard Matthew Dellavedova, Howard’s blow to the face will be reviewed by the NBA.

Check out the difference between Horford and WWE legend ‘The Rock’s patented finisher of the people’s elbow.

Will see if anything more brews between the two giants in Game 6.

Steve Kerr channeling his inner Gregg Popovich with this answer and I thought it was quite awesome.

The Warriors couldn’t dig out of that 1st quarter hole, but the good news is Steph Curry seems to be ok after taking a horrific fall.

The Rockets came out with a lot of energy and simply couldn’t miss. They were able to fight off multiple runs by Warriors.

A lot of irony here.

This fight could have been made in 2009 if not for Pacquiao allegedly being scared of needles and there is controversy about the 2015 fight because Pacquiao couldn’t get a shot before the fight.

With that being said the Nevada State Athletic Commission says all the tests have come back clean. Mayweather & Pacquiao were both given 11 urine tests and 8 blood tests.

Yes, this is real. Someone actually sculpted Air Jordan 1’s from butternut wood, and put them on eBay to auction for the reasonably low price of $10,ooo. These Jordans are rarer than a pair of Yeezy’s so the likelihood that someone is gonna fork over $10K for them is really high.

Maybe it’s just me, but what exactly is the buyer going to do with this wooden replica?

Seahawks Fan Creates GoFundMe For Russell Wilson’s Contract (Video) Mon, 25 May 2015 23:33:34 +0000 Russell Wilson GoFundMe

It isn’t that serious.

If people want to give their hard-earned money to Russell Wilson, so be it, but this is crazy to me. Russell Wilson is doing fine, he is going to get paid a handsome wage at some point, but that hasn’t stop this guy from creating a GoFundMePage.

At least the guy isn’t planning to steal your money or so he says.

What happens to the money that you donate?

I have a strategic plan to get Russell money outside of the salary cap and get this money to Russell Wilson. I will be exploring setting up an LLC to effectively “sponsor” Russell Wilson in the same manner that Bose or Gillette do. In doing so the 12’s will free up to $5M for the Sehawks to go out and get more talent.

What at happens if Russell Wilson refused the paycheck?

In the event that the Wilson doesn’t accept the paycheck from his beloved 12s, a portion of the money will be donated to one of Russell Wilson’s favorite causes — The Seattle Children’s Hospital. Additionally, and not limited to, funds may be used to design and execute a token of appreciation to Russell Wilson for his current and/or future participation in the Seahawks organization. All donated funds are to be used at the sole discretion of the campaign manger and subject to unforeseen limitations.

That last line would worry me if I donated, what if he desires to buy himself a 70 inch TV?

Wonder if Ciara donated?

Unreleased Photos Revealed on 50th Anniversary of Ali-Liston 2 Mon, 25 May 2015 22:56:56 +0000 Ali Liston 2

The AP released a bunch of unseen photos from Ali-Liston 2 and they are marvelous. It has always been my understand that Liston was under extreme mob pressure to take a dive and that is exactly what he did.

It wasn’t so much a “Phantom Punch” as a punch that normally he would have just taken fairly easily and certainly not one that would hilariously make him roll around on the ground the way he did while being counted it.

Crazy this happened over 50 years ago, doesn’t seem like that LONG ago, but my how times have changed (some things sadly have stayed the same).
